Ghana Things to Do: 104 reviews and 273 photos
Mampong, located between Koforidua and Aburi in Ghana's Eastern Region, is a very small town that actually is nothing different from other very small town in the surroundings. But in the year 1870, there was one person that changed this forever: Tetteh Quarshie.
In that year he planted the very first cocoa-trees in his village: the beginning of Ghana's most important business today. In Mampong you can still visit his cocoa farm to see the production process of cocoa and you can even see the two original cocoa-trees that were planted there in 1870.
For more information about Mampong and its cocoafarm, you can have a look at my Mampong-page.
